The air is crisp, and the leaves are changing — Autumn is finally here. To help celebrate this time of year, ClearPath has put together this list of safe and fun activities to help seniors to enjoy the season.
- Go for a walk — or a drive — to take in the vibrant colors. Just getting out and enjoying the brisk fall air can do wonders for our mental and physical health. Remember to bring someone with you when outside, just in case of any emergencies.
- Fall is apple season, so visit an orchard to pick your own juicy apples. Then, if you’re feeling up to it, invite your loved ones over to make and enjoy some delicious apple pie or apple sauce.
- Get creative! Try to press leaves, make a colorful leaf mobile from construction paper, or collect acorns and dip them in paint. Invite kids and grandkids over for a pumpkin painting party.
We believe that seniors shouldn’t feel held back from fun due to their age or medical conditions. It’s one of the reasons why we provide Home Health Care Services in Akron, Ohio: to help aging loved ones participate in hobbies and activities they long to do.
